On this final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour....

Beautiful words from Commander Mark E Kelly at the T-9:00 Hold....

On this final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour, we want to thank all the tens of thousands of dedicated employees that have put their hands on this incredible ship and dedicated their lives to the space shuttle program. As Americans, we endeavor to build a better life than the generation before, and we endeavor to be a united nation.

In these efforts, we are often tested. This mission represents the power of teamwork, commitment and exploration. It is in the DNA of our great country to reach for the stars and explore. We must not stop. To all of the millions watching today, including our spouses, children, family and friends, we thank you for your support.
